No Sea To See

(I’ve just been on a trip to China and Taiwan. I flew to Beijing, took a train to Shanghai, and flew to Taipei. This conversation takes place when calling my mum from Taipei.)

Mum: “That was so fast! I expected 8 hours.”

Me: “I took a plane.”

Mum: “I thought you were taking the train.”

Me: “Only from Beijing to Shanghai. How do you take a train across the ocean?”

Mum: “What ocean?”
